OUAC 101 – Important Dates

May 8, 2018
Target date for Ontario universities to receive second-semester midterm and interim grades for full-year courses from the OUAC. Grades that the OUAC receives earlier will be sent to Ontario universities when received.

May 29, 2018
The latest date you can expect the following responses from an Ontario university:

an offer of admission;
a refusal; or
a deferral, pending additional information.
June 1, 2018
The earliest date you may be required to respond to an Ontario university offer of admission and give a financial commitment (e.g., registration deposit, residence deposit, etc.).

All other admissions‑related elements, including scholarships, other forms of student assistance or financial incentives, and offers of residence, are considered part of the offer of admission. Therefore, you may accept these other offers prior to June 1, 2018, but Ontario universities will not compel a student in any way to make a decision earlier.

July 12, 2018
Target date for the OUAC to transmit all remaining final grades to the universities.

Early June to August 2018
The Admission Information Service (AIS) allows you to determine which Ontario universities still have spots available in first-year undergraduate programs.
